Two drivers injured in rush hour collision
by David Simister

A MAN and a woman are being treated in hospital after being injured in a multi-car collision near Tarleton on Monday morning (February 25).

Lancashire Constabulary is appealing for witness after four cars were involved in a crash near the old school houses on the A59, near Sollom, at around 8am.

A grey Nissa Qashqai travelling from Rufford towards Tarleton was involved on a head-on collision with a black Vauxhall Corsa heading in the opposite direction.

Sergeant James Power said: “This collision has taken place on a main road at rush hour so I would appeal to anybody that witnessed it to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

A grey Nissan Almeria travelling behind the Corsa and a silver WV Passat travelling behind the Qashqai were also involved in the collision.

The female driver of the Corsa and a male passenger in the Qashqai were taken to the Royal Preston Hospital. The man is being treated for suspected spinal injuries and the woman for whiplash and minor facial injuries.

The A59 was closed at the junction with A565 with traffic diverted through Croston while recovery took place.
